1988 Nimble 20
This lovely Ted Brewer designed yawl is the infamous 'Morgan Truce' in which I, my wife, AND two children cruised down the Ohio River, Tenn-Tom Waterway, around the Florida Keys, and up the ICW to Maryland. She is a very proper little yacht with a fine traditional appearance. Other than that long 13-month cruise, she was earlier sailed two summers on a lake, and then spent the rest of her life inside our garage (visited daily by her admiring skipper.)

My Nimble 20 "D" sold this morning. I did get a huge number of high quality inquiries from SailingTexas----but the the buyer was actually drawn in from an ad in TrailerSailor.com
Thank you very much for your assistance---and especially for your $-reduction plan. That works! I feel that I got exactly what the market would bear---and no less.
